The alternative treatment works with the body’s energy systems and meridian pathways. Acupuncture promotes general health, relieves stress, assists in pain relief, balances hormones and infertility issues.
Acupuncture is derived from eastern philosophical thinking that applies the concepts of yin-yang and the five elements. Ancient physicians documented the body’s pulse, blood, body fluids, and correlations of seasons, winds, vitality, flavors, etc., to the adaptation to the environment. This equal and opposite forces (Yin Yang), exist as hot and cold, up and down, open or close, big or small of every element on earth as a balance. In nature, the seasons, climate, elements, colors, along with all functions of the human body all intertwine. This is a universal order of harmony that God created. When this healing energy is not in harmony, a dis-ease state begins. This energy in the body is called “Chi”. The “Chi” flows as a link to pathways or meridians that relate and communicate to the entire body. If a meridian is “sick” it cannot allow Chi to flow and pain or sickness sets in.
How Does It Work?
Tiny needles are inserted carefully into key points on the body to trigger an increase in blood flow to areas where it is blocked or weak. When healthy blood flow is restored, the body’s natural healing abilities are activated, sending the body back into balance.
Traditional acupuncture allows us to access full-body health without the removal of any clothing. Gowns are available for every appointment; however, loose clothing is advised. We’ll pinpoint and effectively treat your concerns via specific points on your head, face, arms, hands, lower legs and feet all while you relax and take a breather from today’s stressors.
The treatment schedule may take 6-12 visits over 1-2 months to get to the core issue, but oftentimes, relief can be felt at the first visit. The sessions last from 30-45 minutes. The points may be sensitive when receiving treatment yet it is encouraged to establish and improve the Chi flow for healing to take place. Often times, the symptomatic pain is reduced at the first visit. This combination of care is a holistic approach that our office greatly encourages.
Achieving true health ALWAYS requires a structural, chemical, and emotional approach and must be addressed with all conditions.
